Great RSS Feed App


I really like LuckNews, I’ve been using it on multiple Macs for several months now. Updates feeds very quickly. The app design is very nice, if I were to request any changes it would be to have the option of changing the article’s headline layout, for example removing the grey background and then having the option of opening the feed article in the applicaiton rather than the external browser woudl be super. But overall an excellent feed reader that competes well with the paid ones that are out there.

Simple, clean and works great.


I just wanted a simple reader to look at a handful of blogs and continually changing web pages, and this fits the bill perfectly. It’s easy to add pages. You can quickly see which sites have updates, and review them one at a time. I like that it’s easy to designate viewing the page in its native web format. I also appreciate that I can see when a page last updated—and therefore quickly identify blogs that have gone dark. And hey, the price is perfect.

Really nice RSS Reader


I have used several rss news readers in the past, and some new ones I've downloaded more recently. Many of them are really great but this one I like the most, mainly because I find it's the fastest in loading feeds and quickest in swiping through my articles, thereby taking less time to read my feeds and get on with my work.

I like the font and design which is easy on the eyes, making it enjoyable and easy to read articles quickly. The feed loading time is lightning fast and I like the over-all design. The only thing I'd like to request be added, would be once I click on a news feed, have the focus area scroll back up to the top of the list so I can start reading from the top to the bottom. Other than that, I love it!

Edit: The developer was quick to respond to my request and emails and kindly added the feature I requested above, so now one can either choose to have the feed's focus scroll back up to the top of the list and read down or choose to have the focus begin where they last left off. Great Work!!!!
